Vertical exploration on the ultra-deep, Ultra-HPHT Solaris fault block prospect with Ula Sandstone primary and Skagerrak secondary targets. Well encountered clean, but low porosity Ula Sandstone at 5,831–5,911 m TVDSS with only minor gas shows. Pressure integrity test showed low fracture gradient indicating top-seal breach. Well abandoned without drilling on to Skagerrak objective. Well set records as deepest well, with highest formation pressures and temperatures at TD, in Norwegian sector.
